Coronavirus drives downloads of Zoom Video

Zoom has surged in popularity amid the Covid-19 pandemic due to governments encouraging people to practice social distancing and work from home to prevent the spread of the virus.

In the US alone, the video conferencing company topped iPhone daily downloads among business applications, according to data compiled by the analytics firm, App Annie.

Only one week ago, Zoom’s cloud meeting app ranked in at number 11 on Apple’s app store, with it all the way down at number 87 just two weeks prior.

Its growing popularity among businesses amid the global pandemic has helped its share price skyrocket above its initial public offering (IPO) price of $36 a share back in April last year, with the stock up nearly 300% since then.
